    I think Tempest in general is really a big throwback to a lot of his '80s stuff, which is so awesome.

    And funny that you should mention Roll On John because the band performance on that song reminds me of nothing so much as Lenny Bruce and Angelina. It's so fitting that the band (not Bob's harrowed voice, of course) sound like they're playing a Shot of Love outtake - 1981 - the first album Bob released after John's death. Makes the whole thing even more touching.

    At first I felt like you, Ralf, bewildered and confused and laughing out loud twice on first listen ("never robbed any churches, never cut off any babies' heads" and, even moreso, "I rode with him in a taxi once, only for a mile and a half but it felt like a couple of months"). For a while I thought it was the solitary dud on the album, but the sweetness of the backing track took hold of me, and over the year-plus since discovery now I've come to love it as much as the others.

    At least he redeemed himself with the gorgeous tribute Roll On John !

    I really don't like the song, I have a hard time taking it seriously, especially within Shot of Love where you have all those upbeat joyous tracks and then comes his boozed out miserable... "Lenny Bruce is deaaaadd, but his ghost lives oooooonnnn and ooonnnn" Never won a Golden Globe? Well at least he didn't dismember babies. Anyway I get a good chuckle out of it. :)

    The lyrics are clumsy and silly (the more I listen, the more lovably so) but Bob's vocals and the backing band are SUBLIME.

    Never heard this song. Very nice tribute to Lenny.

    Great song, but I can't help but wonder what Lenny would have thought of Dylan giving him a song in one of his Born Again albums...

    To reiterate: "Lenny Bruce was bad, he was the brother that you never had" is one of the great, underrated lines of Dylan's career.

    One of my favorite eighties Dylan songs. Really sweet and straightforward with a great last line.
